I am a member of the ANC and have been since 1989 when I was barely 11 years old. Painfully, it is the first time in all these years that I am overcome by a great feeling of doubt about the ANC.

The mere mention of South Africa in a discussion provokes deep images of institutional racism, discrimination and horrific violence.

How the world sees us: The Times – “Zuma is enemy of blacks and whites”

Those who have been through crisis points in their lives know that the first step to recovery is admitting there is problem, that the situation is unmanageable. The paradox is that only after such utter surrender can the solutions begin. There are reminders everywhere.1 I had a couple this week that the Zuma Administration is some way from grasping reality. One was a passionate soccer administrator who tried to explain away the $10m bribe SA paid FIFA officials to host the 2010 World Cup. Another is recently appointed Eskom chief Brian Molefe’s emotive defence of the indefensible Russian nuclear power project that threatens to bankrupt SA (but enrich the already enriched). RW Johnson’s explains in some detail in his classic How Long Can SA Survive that the end of Apartheid was engineered abroad. Hopefully international pressure will play a similar, desperately required job of sobering those who desperately need it. Here’s a precis of what the British are reading about South Africa in the influential Times of London this morning. – Alec Hogg

Words of a Desperate Zuma

I couldn’t agree more education is paramount, but unfortunately Zuma doesn’t have the money or the infrastructure to do this, and why does he only talk about this now, when he’s known about this for years, besides, that was the great Madiba’s vision, not bloody Zuma’s!

images (1)He’s only saying this to start feathering his nest for the next election, it’s a political promise that he knows he can’t deliver on, he can’t even feed the country.

Game farmers and livestock owners are living in fear of their lives after receiving death threats!

Game farmers and livestock owners in the Vryburg district of North West province say they are living in fear of their lives after receiving death threats.

The matter stems from the "flagrant and criminal abuse" of hunting permits issued by the North West Chief Directorate of Biodiversity. No one has been arrested and no hunting permits have been cancelled.

They claim gangs of armed members of the Ganyesa Tribal Authority have been illegally hunting on private land. The volatile situation came to a head last week when more than 300 farmers met at the Tosca Farmers’ Association to discuss a way forward.
